–Chase English Oak Smoked Vodka
Pure well water acts as the base for this recipe, which is left in a smokehouse for five days to give it scent. That water is then made into vodka with home-grown potatoes. The final product has a smooth, smoky flavor that will add a new twist to your Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, or Martini, all for under $40 ($38, to be exact).
Who does vodka better than Russia? This wheat mash is made with artesian water and triple-filtered through quartz sand and birch wood charcoal. After filtering, it’s frozen at -0.4 degrees Farenheit to be filtered once more through an ion-charged process to create a dry vodka with notes of vanilla and lemon. The best part? You can try this multi-award winning spirit for $40.
